Baby Riley

She is here! Riley Joy is here!

Yes, my best friend had her first baby. I don’t even know if I can describe all of my emotions the past month!

First, anticipation… when would Riley actually arrive? Then, boom she was on her way… EARLY. Which, led to worrying (also lots of praying) as my friend spent a LONG time in labor. Then, an overwhelming rush of pride for my friend when they told all of us in the waiting room Riley was here! Shelly did it! And then I saw Riley, and became a bit of a blubbering aunt. She was so precious and teeny tiny. And already I love her so much!

And already, she has changed so much! I am so excited I can be there to watch her grow. And Shelly and Kyle, I can already tell, you guys are going to be amazing parents. She is precious. We love you guys (all three of you) alot.

So without further ado… here is Ms. Riley at two weeks old. And yes, we did stick her in a basket… but doesn’t she look so stinking cute?

She is having some sweet dreams I think…


Such a sweetie!
